Sexy, ambitious Superintendent Sandra Pullman (Amanda Redman, Sexy Beast) leads the cold case squad of the Metropolitan Police in this affable British drama. Her team includes three aging former detectives lured out of retirement. Gerry Standing (Dennis Waterman, The Sweeney) is a womanizer, Brian Lane (Alun Armstrong, Bleak House) is clinically depressed, and Jack Halford (James Bolam, The Beiderbecke Affair) has conversations with his dead wife. Can this curmudgeonly trio of crime-busters learn new tricks to crack tough crimes? Or are old-fashioned hunches and footwork still best?
The masterful performances and top-tier guest stars make this long-running, award-winning British series an "unstoppable ratings monster" (London Sunday Telegraph) in the U.K. A drama with tongue firmly in cheek, deftly written and perfectly cast, it's "the crime show to watch" (Daily Post, U.K.). 8 episodes, 3 DVDs, approx. 466 minutes, SDH.
